AMERICA’S ELITE POKÉMON PLAYERSTAKE ON THE WORLD IN HAWAII
Finalists to Battle for Special Prizeat the 2012 Pokémon World Championships

Bellevue, WA - July 2, 2012 – Three days of intense Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) and video game competition at the 2012 Pokémon U.S. National Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana culminated in the crowning of six U.S. National Champions and the formation of an elite group of finalists ready to battle against the world’s best this August at the 2012 Pokémon World Championships in Hawaii. From a group of thousands, only 36 American Pokémon TCG and video game players will travel to the Big Island of Hawaii with one goal in mind, becoming a Pokémon World Champion.

As a special incentive for the Pokémon video game players advancing to Hawaii, The Pokémon Company International will choo`se a select number of top players and their Pokémon teams who are participating at the 2012 Pokémon Video Game World Championships and distribute them via the Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection service into the upcoming Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 [1] video games (launching in the U.S. October 7). Once distributed, players can battle these elite Pokémon World Championships participants and the Pokémon they trained in the Pokémon World Tournament, a new battle arena debuting in the Pokémon Black Version 2 andPokémon White Version 2 games. More information about the Pokémon World Tournament is coming soon, and the 2012 Pokémon Video Game World Champion player distribution details will be announced later this fall.

Below is a complete list of U.S. Pokémon TCG and video game finalists that earned invitations to the 2012 Pokémon World Championships taking place August 11-12 in Waikoloa, Hawaii. For more information, news, and images from the 2012 Pokémon U.S. National Championships visit www.pokemon.com.
